Book Review - Queen Lucia~~~~~~~

Queen LuciaQueen Lucia by E.F. Benson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Written in 1920, Queen Lucia is like a breath of fresh air and a nice change for me in what I have been reading. Living in the small village of Riseholme, the town's eminent quirky citizens all line up behind the doings and such of Lucia, the self-appointed Queen. Most important is who is doing what and who else knows it and how they might take credit for it. Various realms of belief to enlighten their lives are sought with fervor. The humor is superbly dry, witty and quite English in the extreme. As a dedicated Anglophile, I say "Here,here; Good Show!"
